    Can't see all apps in the store


    hello guys,

    I got windows 8 since 2 days now and i wanted to download a facebook app on the store but the store only got 44 apps.
    A friend of me with the same version also installed at the same time can view alot more apps.

    How can i see all the applications instead of the normal 44 apps in the store??

    Thank you,

    Actually, I'm encountering this problem for the first time.

    On my PC, with my account, I see the full library of apps available in the Windows store.

    However, on my father's PC, with his account, he sees a very limited selection of titles. Does anyone know why this is? And is there a way for him to see the full selection? I didn't even realize it until I was trying to install an app on his computer that I really liked and couldn't even search for it.

    I found the solution!

    In the settings (charms bar > settings > preferences), if you enable (switch it to Yes) the settings for "make it easier to find...", it will limit the number of apps you can see. This makes it easier to find your preferred languages because it limits the apps to only your preferred languages.

    In order to see all the Windows Store apps, you have to set the option to No.
